We promise your gift will support Chetham’s Capital Projects. Our Capital Projects have transformed Chetham’s with the opening of the New School Building in 2012, the demolition of the Palatine Building and the opening of The Stoller Hall in 2017, the Humphrey Chetham Members have been our biggest supporters every step of the way.
